Calories Burned Swimming: Butterfly Style

Butterfly Swimming strengthens core muscles. The core muscles are essential for numerous everyday tasks, including lifting, pushing and pulling. Moreover, strong core muscles help prevent injury from more intense exercise, such as weightlifting. The force from water provides an ongoing challenge for the core muscles so that these strength gains come naturally.
